POLICE are looking for a man who intervened in an argument which resulted in a stabbing on the Rye on Sunday.

A man and a girl were seen arguing in woodland near the disused railway footpath leading to Bowden Lane, close to The Rye, between 3pm and 4pm.

It is alleged that the man then assaulted the girl, and that a member of the public challenged the man about his actions.

The man and girl then continued their row onto the Rye, where the man was stabbed with a knife.

The stabbing victim is being treated in John Radcliffe Hospital, where his condition is described as stable.

And police are keen to speak to the member of the public who initially intervened because he may be able to help officer with their enquiries.

Investigating officer, Det Con Gavin Toney said: “I want to specifically appeal to anyone who saw the man and the girl arguing in woodland near the disused railway footpath that leads onto Bowden Lane.

“If you have any information please contact me via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101."

If you don't want to speak directly to a police officer then you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.

No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
